I've been using 2% milk for titrating but the bubbles, foam thing is confusing. On the titrating video, he says after stirring up the milk and adding the crushed benzo to let it sit till the bubbles are gone. Then draw out what you need. Does this mean the benzo has separated from the milk and I didn't get the right amount drawn out all this time. I'm down to 75ml from 100 ml.  :wacko:

I used milk at one point during my taper with the brand name K tablets and did not have any problems. I didn't do much with it. The one thing I found that helped a lot was to let the tablet sit in the milk for 15 minutes or so. Then a quick stir and I would have an even looking suspension that worked well enough for me. There is also talk of using Miralax solution since the cellulose binds to the benzo and creates an even suspension. I did not try this method though, because by the time I heard of it, I was using the K wafers. NOTHING worked for me to suspend those things!

any thoughts on titrating with V8 juice as I am somewhat lactose intolerant?

I am down to a quarter of a Temazepam tablet thinking about crushing this up and taking off a line with a credit card and putting the rest  :'(on a spoon with milk and drinking it. I want to cut 10% of my quarter tablet dose at night.

I wrote this somewhere else but it applies here,

Has anyone used Ora-plus, or xantham gum as a suspension fluid?

I have never heard of anyone using it.. I know what Xanthum Gum is, I bet that would work. I never really thought about that.

Hi Sigma,

I bought the ora-plus and am using it now for my titration suspension fluid.  I like it a lot, but only a week in.

It contains xantham gum - so I gave up trying to create my own suspension.

As for the other ingredients, they are not as close to the food chain, but there is no bad taste, and I need less than a ml per dose.

Best thing about it is that it lasts for a month or more, if refrigerated.  I could carry a freezer bag if I needed to go somewhere.

I am glad it is working for you.

Thanks Sigma,

It is a relief to have figured out a way to taper on 1mg clonazepam.  (no more refills as the doc does not believe in tapering)  So I have enough left and a good way to do it.  HAPPY!

I [...] everyone finds what works for them too.
